Nick Diaz to Face Jorge Masvidal at UFC 235 in All-Hood Battle

Nick Diaz is so street that he sometimes poops asphalt. Jorge Masvidal is so street, his middle name is “Main”.

Okay, these were awful jokes, but they’re a clear indication of my excitement over the match-up between Diaz and Masvidal at UFC 235. Bros, the older, poorer Diaz sibling is finally coming back!

Neither dude is prone to slacking or hugging in the cage. In fact, these dudes are so keen on throwing down “street” style that referee Herb Dean has confiscated about a dozen switchblades from them prior to their fights. This bout will be insane!

Here’s ESPN with the scoop:

UFC welterweight Nick Diaz will return to competition on March 2 in Las Vegas, according to UFC president Dana White.

Diaz (26-9) has agreed to face Jorge Masvidal (32-13) in a welterweight contest at UFC 235 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Additional sources told ESPN contracts for the bout are not yet signed, but it is close to being finalized.

A former Strikeforce champion, Diaz has not fought since he suffered a decision loss to Anderson Silva in January 2015. The result of that bout was later changed to a no-contest, after both Silva and Diaz failed their respective drug tests.

Midnight Mania! Nick Diaz on Woodley-Till: ‘Stop Making Bullsh*t Fights’

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Nick Diaz weighed in on the Woodley-Till fight that went down this past weekend. In his estimation, it seems he thought Woodley took an easy fight in the form of Darren Till. It certainly ended up a one-sided bout, with Till landing barely a strike before succumbing to ground-and-pound and a Woodley choke in the second round.

“I missed the whole fight… I’ve never had an easy fight in my life. Fight that kid… I wouldn’t take one. It’s like… stop making bullshit fights with this guy!”

Nick Diaz hasn’t had a fight since his 2015 middleweight bout with Anderson Silva. He hasn’t had a win in the Octagon since 2011. Could we see the former Strikeforce welterweight champion make his return to MMA in the near future? He was recently cleared of a domestic violence charge, and has stated plans to return in 2019 after being serving a trumped-up suspension for weed use.


Insomnia

A lot of fighters were happy to see Tyron Woodley win in impressive fashion

Sorry, Wonderboy. Despite the draw and majority decision, no one wants to see this a third time.

CM Punk was also happy to see him win

This could get interesting

Karolina Kowalkiewicz issued a statement to her fans after her knockout loss to nigh-unstoppable strawweight force Jessica Andrade.

This made me chuckle

The Chosen One

Nicco Montano, naturally, was not at all happy with the UFC or Shevchenko after her belt was summarily stripped from her this weekend.

Worth noting

Darren Till is already planning his comeback. Also, he doesn’t like Snoop Dogg.

This is a very weird Texas rule I didn’t know about.

Just a few highlights from the weekend

This was some knockout! The spinning elbow trumped the spinning backfist.

Woah

Also… sumo is back.

Nick Diaz’s Domestic Violence Legal Woes Are Over

Erstwhile UFC star Nick Diaz was supposed to be returning to the Octagon, but after dealing with some USADA nonsense, a female acquaintance went nuclear and had him arrested on accusations of domestic violence.

And of course, nothing derails a comeback like ugly domestic violence charges.

But a friend of Diaz chimed in that the charges were crap, and finally, the judge and the presiding district attorney have agreed. Diaz is a free man.

As per MMAFighting:

The Clark County (Nev.) District Attorney declined to pursue the case against Diaz, the popular UFC fighter, on Thursday morning, according to Diaz’s attorney Ross Goodman. The judge in Las Vegas Justice Court dismissed the case with prejudice, meaning it was dismissed permanently.

Diaz was facing three felony charges, including two counts of domestic battery by strangulation and one for domestic battery with substantial bodily harm. In addition, he was facing a domestic battery misdemeanor charge stemming from a May incident.

Last month, a grand jury ruled not to indict Diaz on any of the charges, but the DA decided to move forward with the case until now.

“We are grateful that the District Attorney’s office was fair and thoughtful in reviewing this case based on the evidence and making the decision to dismiss this matter particularly in light of the Grand Jury’s decision finding probable cause was lacking,” Goodman said in a statement.

Apparently the accuser couldn’t keep her story straight. *Sigh*

Diaz took to social media to thank those who stood by him.
